Chemical compound and disease context of Athletic Injuries


Biological context of Athletic Injuries

  • New sports injury cases, presenting to five metropolitan Melbourne sports medicine clinics during a 12 month period in 1996-1997, were recorded through the Sports Medicine Injury Surveillance project [13].

Gene context of Athletic Injuries

  • The rapidly increasing understanding of the structure and function of the ECM protein TN-C may well bring important insights into the clinical treatment of sports injuries in the future [14].
  • Sports injuries accounted for an average of 29,435 lost duty days each year: Men lost an average of 13 days per injury and women lost an average of 11 days per injury [15].
  • In the ACC, most institutions record clinically relevant athletic injury data on-site at the time of evaluation and later prepare a full note describing the evaluation and return to play decisions [16].
  • A six month prospective survey in 1990 of sports injuries presenting to the A+E department of St James and the Mater hospitals revealed 1594 patients, accounting for 3.8% of the total number of new patients seen in that period [17].
  • Referrals were equally likely after RTA, sports injuries and assaults, more frequent after objects striking the head [18].
